This 24″ x 36″ oil painting is called “Blue Skies Ahead.”
A feeling of joy and optimism radiates from this painting. The colors glow in tones of warm gold, brown and blue.
The dome of a wide blue sky spreads out above us as we look up into a circle of giant, ancient trees.
This large, dramatic painting has a commanding presence.
The golden light from the sun partially obliterates one of the tree trunks as it peeks around its edge.
High up in the bright sky, we can see the faraway details of tiny branches reaching up into the open air.
In the lower corner, the sky is a deeper, saturated turquoise blue.
Up close, the thick texture of bold brush strokes and abstract shapes fill the surface of the painting.
The image continues around the deep edges of the canvas.
